(Amsterdam IBC, Netherlands--September 11, 2012) The ALEXA M D-Bracket provides additional mounting options for the ALEXA M camera head. Now the ALEXA M body can be attached to the head in a 435 camera style. Available in October, The ALEXA M D-Bracket is priced at 212 €.
Parts of the system include the new ALEXA M Dovetail Bracket MDB-1 (205 €), the ALEXA M Dovetail Plate MDP-1 (168 €), and the Universal Adapter Plate UAP-1 (189 €).
The ALEXA M top and bottom cage plates have been redesigned as well to allow compatibility with the rear-attachable D-Bracket in various combinations; the Bridge Plate Adapter AMB-2 (432 €) with its rosettes can be mounted on the heads top, bottom, or both, together with the D-Bracket. ALEXA M Cage Side Brackets and the 15 mm rod adapter remain compatible with the new cage plates.
The ALEXA M Single Fiber Upgrade provides single fiber ST connectors for the ALEXA M camera head and body, instead of the standard SMPTE 304 connectors. This is particularly useful for specialty applications that require a single fiber, such as helicopter gimbals with optical slip rings. For regular on-set use we recommend the more robust SMPTE 311 or SMPTE Steadicam cables. Upgrades are performed by ARRI Service Centers at a price of 4,990 €.
The Universal Adapter Plate UAP-1 can be quickly moved from a traditional ARRI cine-style bridge plate (including BP-3, 5, 8 or 9) to a Steadicam dovetail plate. It attaches to the front and back foot of ALEXA, ALEXA Plus, ALEXA Plus 4:3 or ALEXA M body with a tight and secure fit. Additionally, it is used to attach the ALEXA M Body to the ALEXA M D-Bracket. The UAP-1 fulfills all the tasks of the BPA-2, but is not compatible with ALEXA Studio. Available in October, pricing is listed at 189 €.
